70+ PHOTOS: Grafton host Coffs Harbour in epic AFL opener
AUSSIE rules made its return to the North Coast on Sunday with the Grafton Tigers hosting Coffs Harbour Breakers junior sides in their opening round fixtures.
The Tigers and Breakers both had their hands on a number of junior titles last year and the hunger was there for the rivals to prove their worth in round one of the AFL North Coast competition.
The under-11s and under-13s tipped off on Sunday morning before the youth girls and under-15s launched their premiership defence in 2020.
They might be small but the hits were big and the efforts even bigger as the two rivals went to battle on the hallowed turf at Grafton's Ellem Oval.
